The “purple hand” was an early symbol of the gay liberation movement and an effort to show resilience in the face of anti-gay attacks. The term originates from Oct 31st 1969 when activists protested the San Francisco Examiner’s series of anti-gay articles by protesting in front of the building. Employees of the newspaper dumped purple ink on the peaceful protesters. The activists used the ink to draw slogans on the building and to make a visible mark of gay uprising.
Emerald City Comic Con starts today and will be happening throughout the weekend. In my opnion it’s fun to step outside the box from time to time and be an alter-ego of sorts, happily surprise others with your unexpected daring, fun, playful, & bold perspectives and actions. That is how I see events like these, a way to stay in touch with the magic of our youth that was imagination. This is just me for a weekend, at high noon on Monday I return back to my more familiar self.

It’s blue Friday, playoffs, and the divisional tittle game this Sunday…Seattle is alive with the eclectic energy of the #12’s the 12th man. The feeling here in Seattle is electric and jovial, truly something beautiful to witness and be a part of. Yes, I said beautiful in reference to gridiron football, when you see how the community joins together for a common cause, smiling, helping, saying hi to strangers and having conversations with people who on the surface you may not ever have an ice breaker to say hi or realize that we all have things in common despite some apparent differences, well that is beautiful my friends. Some people are shocked I am such a football fan, just as sometimes I am shocked at how eco friendly and liberal some of the pickup truck driving, buzzcut wearing, fisherman can be. 🙂 The 12’s break all boundaries, social stereo types and brings us together.
